Regional West Australians are off to ARTLANDS
Eight applicants from regional and remote Western Australia will receive travel assistance for a total amount of $17,791 to attend ARTLANDS DUBBO through the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, managed in Western Australia by Country Arts WA.
ARTLANDS is the Regional Arts Australia biennial conference being held in Dubbo, New South Wales from the 27 to 30 of October. The ‘Part Festival, Part Conference, All Art’ event follows the highly successful Regional Arts Australia Summit: Arts & Edges held in Kalgoorlie in 2014.
Four individuals and four community groups from the Peel, South West, Great Southern, Mid West, Wheatbelt and Goldfields-Esperance regions will receive financial support to cover travel, accommodation and registration costs for the event.
“As the largest art gathering in Australia, ARTLANDS will provide the applicants with the opportunity to network with people involved in regional arts from across Australia and enable them to share their unique experiences of Western Australia.” said Paul Mac Phail, CEO of Country Arts WA. “Through the conference, the participants will also gain invaluable professional development from the dynamic and inspirational mix of presentations, workshops, discussions and events on offer.”
The four-day program includes workshops, conversations, discussions, debates and inspiration, and features more than 70 national and international presenters.
